Hi @Pqfan : )

 

I think it should work, if you plug in a new keyboard.  So frustrating for you.

 

ETA - for what it's worth, I Googled and yes - you can plug an external keyboard into a laptop.

@Pqfan...sorry that has happened to you.  Do you have a best buy store near you that you can just call them and ask?  They would know based on what type of computer you have.  Good luck.

@Pqfan I am using an external keyboard with my laptop right now (plug in but have also used wireless).  You should have no problem.

I have added a keyboard to my laptop with no problem.  Just check to see it is compatable with your computer.

If you are handy with the laptop or know someone that is check out the videos on Youtube. You may just find the right fix. Just search laptop keys not working.

Re: Help!!!

I googled:

 

no idea if it works or the results

 

Shut down the laptop, removed battery and cable for a moment, press and hold the start button for 60 seconds... and replace the battery.. start the lap top..
